Salah breaks record and Boateng leaves Barca heartbroken

The standout players from the past weekend's action in the Premier League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, LaLiga, and Serie A.

The winger scored a record-breaking 32nd goal of the Premier League season as he set a new mark for the most goals in a 38-game campaign. Salah went into the last day of the season at Anfield sharing the record, but needed only 26 minutes to make it his personal property as he produced a clinical left-foot finish from inside the Brighton penalty area, setting Liverpool on the way to a 4-0 win that secured a Champions League place next season. Salah, who was voted the Premier League Player of the Year earlier in the day, scored 44 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool this past season.
